Legendary Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo is pondering retirement despite being in the form of his life.
He was over the moon as he shared the news on Instagram saying: “Got to pick up my new watch ahead of fight week here in Riyadh. Thank you, Jacob and Co, and my brother, Cristiano Ronaldo! FuryNgannou.”
Ngannou is preparing for a do-or-die battle against Fury which has drawn criticism from fans who wanted the latter to face Olexander Usyk.
The bout is dubbed 'The Battle of the Baddest' and it will see the Nigerian mixed martial artist compete in his first professional boxing fight. From the bout, he is set to pocket more than Ksh 800 million.
Ngannou was no small fish in UFC, either - he was the reigning heavyweight champion at the time of his departure.

He said: “Great talking with the GOAT in Riyadh today. Very inspiration, Cristiano Ronaldo.”
